    With the Raiders front 4, they don’t have to blitz to get consistent pressure. Because there secondary is suspect and may not have Nmandi, why take the chance?

    I am glad you brought it up at the end about the Tampa 2. Are the Steelers transitioning more to this D with Tomlin? I did not have a chance to see most of the game but hearing 4 rushers Troy deep all game sounded like Tampa 2. Also you bring up press coverage, rerouting wrs would be a great counter to the quick hit style of the patriots. B-mac is not good at press them why have a 6′ 190lb corner. I would like to see Keenan Lewis on the outside pressing with Ike and have b-Mac in middle zone with farrior have Timmons take away the TE and get a rush with Woodley AND Harrison, because attacking the QB is what they do best. One point I thought you did not address was the offensive speed of the Raiders. McFadden, Bey, Murphy and Ford are all sub 4.4 guys and will cause matchup problems if there is no pass rush.
